The Chief's Black Cats Loan Confirmed



Nedum Onuoha has hit the road North East for the season. City and a delighted Sunderland have just confirmed that the deal is sealed...

As VMC confirmed last night...

The Chief, a diehard 23 year old City fan and MCFC Academy graduate, reknowned for his eloquent well educated approach has never let City down when called upon. Only repeated injury problems have thwarted his bid to become an established City star.

Onuoha has 89 starts and 4 goals to his name in Sky Blue.

There will be relief amid disappointment that he's going around SportCity that one of our own has not been completely jettisoned, yet his need for first team action is totally understandable.


In other news, another MCFC Academy lad Andy Tutte has joined Rochdale on loan until January.

So that's Petrov, Bojinov, Sylvinho, Garrido and Onuoha now confirmed as off the wage bill of the senior squad.

I'm sure the move north east will prove to be a success. Good luck Ned and we'll see you in 12-months time.
Tudor
You might not see him again!
Vanilla Ice
Good loan for the lad, i'd hope for his career he considers a permanent move away, given the games he could become a top class defender

That's our favour to Sunderland repaid - Ned will be back next season to play first team football at City.

Our favour to Sunderland repaid? Not until they've signed Croque Santa Cruz it's not! Best of luck Ned, hope you return, but am afraid you won't. Suspect he'll go on to great things all the same.

Comments like these were said of Joe Hart last season and look at what's happened to Joe since.
Thaibluefan
Would love to see him lead Sunderland to a top 8 finish, break into the England squad, and return to us. However if he did, he would be mad not to seek assurances that when fit, he is the guaranteed minimum third choice centre half and behind no-one else in the pecking order. If he fulfils his potential at Sunderland the club should grab him back and try to turn him into our Terry. There is really no substitute at a big club for a dyed in the wool supporter who will never quit. Puyol, Terry, hell even the Chuckle Brother, these guys are/were talismans for their teams.
DarthGonzo
He'll be back, as the club would be stupid to sell him. What has happened, since we have a ton of money, is that we don't need to develop players to be sold anymore. We can loan them out for a few years, and then bring them back when we need them. It's genius, really.
PhillyBlueMoon
Ned's the real deal. A great footballer, a great personality and a great human being. He's sill young and his spell at Sunderland can only help him grow to become the great centre back he will become at city in a few years time - wish you all the best at the black cats Chief!
